M for Mango Leather under Street Food / Misc. I remember some street hawker who used to sell this on our street which was totally forbidden for us. So it made it even more sweet or me when my aunt used to offer it to me when I visited her. 

Much later this Mamidi thaandra (as we call it in Telugu) was commercially packaged and sold in stores. But the thrill of eating it when the hawker comes to your door step is totally on a different plane, right??

So as soon as I saw various versions of this mango leather floating in the Blogosphere, I was tempted to make it. But the fat that it needed 3-4 hours of oven time put me off for quite some time and moreover I was not sure if my kids would like it. But then I made a small batch the other day and I hardly had a few strips left for the photo shoot!

The next time I shall make thicker ones but then it would take much longer in the oven ..lets see what can be done..any ideas??

Ingredients - 

*Mango Pulp 1 cup (I used canned sweetened pulp)
Honey 1 Tbsp (or as needed) or sugar for a vegan version
Lime/Lemon Juice 1 tsp (or as needed)

*If using fresh mangoes, cube the pieces, puree and strain. Add as much sweetener as needed.

Method Of Preparation -

Preheat the oven at the lowest temperature. I preheated it at 175 °F.

In a bowl add all ingredients and mix well.

In a parchment paper lined baking tray, pour the mixture evenly into a thin layer.

Bake it for 3-4 hours, keeping an eye every 30 min after 2 hours. It is done when the top layer is firm to touch.

Let it cool, peel it off and cut as desired. I cut them into 3 long rectangles of 1 1/2 - 2 inches in width and rolled them into logs.

Wrap in plastic covers/parchment paper and store in an airtight container. It should stay good for a week. (We finished it in 2 days) .
